There's a lot of hype among long-time Sonic fans for the upcoming retro-styled Sonic Mania, but that's not the only hedgehog adventure SEGA has in the pipeline. The team behind Sonic Generations is also working on a new 3D Sonic game (known only as Project Sonic 2017 at this time) for next year.

While we still know very little about the upcoming game, a few details have trickled out thanks to a recent meet and greet event in Japan. Twitter user BlueStorm_SONIC attended the event, and they were told that Project Sonic 2017 will feature a new character. The team also confirmed that the game will feature a mixture of 2D and 3D stages like Generations did, and they hinted that there will be a new feature of some kind, but they didn't elaborate.
